(GAZA ) - The Prime Minister of the deposed Hamas government in Palestine, Ismail Haneya, is urging Arab leaders during a special meeting in Libya today, to make a decision on the Palestinian cause.

Haneya stated at the Arab extraordinary summit that they will discuss the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, but should make decisions that boost the current Palestinian position.

"Israeli aggressions, blockade and the Judaization of Jerusalem require clear and crucial decisions," Haneya said.

The Arab extraordinary summit got underway Saturday in Sirte, Libya. It begins one day after the Arab League's follow-up peace committee's endorsement of a decision made by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas- to suspend face-to-face negotiations till Israel until settlement construction freeze.

The committee is giving the United States one month to pressure Israel to halt settlement constructions, while also urging U.S. leaders to do whatever they can to save the peace process before it collapses.

As far as Hamas is concerned, their leaders say the Arab decision to avoid direct talks with Israel in the event that the settlement continues is "not enough." Hamas called the Arab position to end the " futile" talks.
